We were extremely lucky with the weather when we did the Dove Lake walk! It was cloudy, no rain & only on occasions we could see the peak! But still - the views were amazing!! This walk was enjoyed by all the family & it's...More
From the moment we arrived the scenery was just magical. Our family did this walk in about 3 hours with two young children (6 and 8) with lots of stops to enjoy the falling snow and throw snowballs at each other. I highly reccomend this...More

We took the Park Shuttle Bus to Dove Lake & commenced the walk going towards the left. We had read many perspectives on which direction to go (right or left), & after having completed the walk, I would also recommend taking left & finishing near...More
Getting to Dove Lake has become problematic as more tourists want to get in. The shuttle buses to & from the lake may run regularly but they often fill quickly. People are asked not to line up at the boom gate to the park and...More
Most of the literature describes this as an easy walk, and 340 of the 360 degrees of the walk probably is. The other 20 degrees is uphill! Not a challenge to most people but I did a fair bit of huffing and puffing.
An amazing walk in the middle of winter. Did the walk between 10 and 12:30. Amazing reflections in the water. If you can get a clear blue day it is definitely worth the experience. A quite easy walk which takes 2-3 hours.
We live in Tasmania but rarely visit Cradle Mountain. We went yesterday and the weather was alternating between light snow & wind/sleet plus some intermittent sunshine. With good footwear, warm layers & good wet weather it was an outstanding and memorable walk. We took our...More

The early part of the walk is relatively easy and would present no problems, however the middle and homeward sections do have some steep sections and a number of stairs. I would not feel comfortable or recommend attempting this walk with two small children. Would suggest that you could walk as far as Glacier Rock and perhaps a little further along the boardwalks. Then return to the start and walk the first stage of the reverse walk to the Boat Shed. Covering these sections will give you more than ample views of Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, as well as many photo opportunities.
